Sermon:
National Moral Degeneracy (2)
Albert N. Martin

“ Preached 31 years ago, still relevant ”
I first listened to these four sermons one year after they were preached at the Midwest Reformed Baptist Family conference, Bluffton, OH. 1983 .I only knew of Pastor Martin for a few months. I am sure I have listened to a few thousand sermons since, I once gave 300 sermons away of some of these and other sermons in 1 year. But 30 years later I don't know of four sermons that exist on cassettes, and now mp3, that are as powerful. I am only drawing attention to them here because comparatively, they haven't been heard that much here.Just listened to the sermon Effective Fatherhood again by the same preacher. It is devastating to my innate self righteousness but that is why the reason to hear these things. To throw me to the feet of the Savior again and again that He would - as Thomas Brooks would say- pick me up in the arms of mercy.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Wednesday I was talking to Albert Martin about how the conference at the Creation Museum went Reforming Families 2014. Again I told him that he would benefit by listening to a couple of young Free Presbyterian pastors. He asked me to send him a link and I sent him the link to this sermon. Then I downloaded it and burned a CD to listen to on the way to the prayer meeting that night. I was so edified. Steven (Lee) I was so pleased to hear things went well at the conference. Please communicate to Geoff Banister to consider Pastor McClelland for a future conference. I asked our church to pray for that conference and I pray that there will be solid fellowship in the future between us Reformed Baptists and the Free Presbyterians. I love these young men dearly. God bless you brethren for your work in the Lord. T M S - Grand Rapids, MI.

“ Berridge the Comforter ”
I want my wife to hear this! Though Berridge is not well known in our day, I would have to put his hymns next to those of Joseph Hart as a remedy for doubting souls. He wrote, " Tell how thy bosom tyrants lash, And rage without control; Show where the fetters gall thy flesh, And bruise thy inmost soul. The sight will melt his piteous heart, Soon touched with human woe; And healing up thy guilty smart, His freed-man thou shalt go. His works are not well known, but are in print in our day through Gospel Missions, Choteau Montana.

“ Superb Narration ”
The narrator is Christopher Glyn. I have sampled his narrations that you have provided here and have to rate him as high as Max McLean, especially the recording quality. The price they list for the entire Bible, 24.99, sure seems to be worth it. Thanks for alerting us to these recordings. P.S. McLean's narration of the King James Bible is far superior to his earlier recording of the N I V. If these men would give us many volumes of puritan and reformed materials, I would quit narrating forever, because I would much rather listen. T M S

“ Amazing Video ”
If I remember correctly, the graphics artist that does this work for Grace Gems uses Adobe After Effects. All I can say is, wow. I am speechless. I will never forget the first time I narrated "A Few Sighs from Hell" by John Bunyan and was so affected with his descriptive language. This just adds to the power of it. I wish you still had the video for Lessons from the Recent Earthquake, Samuel Davies

“ Great Sermon! ”
The timing of this sermon seemed providential since I am on chapter 5 of John Owen's Grace and Duty of Being Spiritually Minded, narrating it into a newer audiobook. Pastor McClelland is one of about 5 pastors that I download continually to my IPOD to listen to while delivering the mail. Each of them benefit me differently, such as Rick Anderson, C J Mahaney, Voddie Baucham, James White... but I believe Pastor McClelland comes behind none of them in his communicating abilities and excellent application. I rejoice when a person's gifts are obviously from the Lord Jesus Christ -that which He gives to His Church, and in their preaching we hear His voice. T M S www.puritanaudiobooks.net

“ Epic study ”
Since leaving the original comments here on Gerstner's two lectures, part of his 12 lectures on Edwards's doctrine, the link I provided has been moved. But I have three lectures here on SermonAudio that covers this material. starting with SID=5101012463110 Also available thanks to Still Water Revival Books.

“ The Scientist for Studying the Christian Heart ”
This month I have begun narrating this whole book once again. Certainly because a better digital recording is helpful to have. But more importantly because it makes me meditate on it. Owen wrote, "Where prayers are effectual, they will bring in spiritual strength. But the prayers of many seem to be very spiritual, and to express all conceivable supplies of grace, and they are persisted in with constancy, — and God forbid we should judge them to be hypocritical and wholly insincere, — yet there is a defect somewhere, which should be inquired after, for they are not so answered as that they who pray them are strengthened with strength in their souls. There is not that spiritual thriving, that growth in grace, which might be expected to accompany such supplications...how persons should continue in prayer in general according to the mind of God, so far as can be outwardly discovered, and yet thrive not at all as unto spiritual strength in their souls, is hard to be understood. And, which is yet more astonishing, men abide in the duty of prayer, and that with constancy, in their families and otherwise, and yet live in known sins. Whatever spiritual thoughts such men have in and by their prayers, they are not spiritually minded. puritanaudiobooks.net

Sermon:
An Alarm to the Unregenerate
Thomas Boston

comment
“ We need this kind of preaching today. ”
A friend got me to looking through these Thomas Boston narrations because he said he was so fond of Thomas Boston that he sleeps with a volume of his works under his pillow. I told him I agreed, that this is what our country needs a Boston T. party. Back about 1985, I found my first copy of Fourfold State in a used book store in Alexandra, VA. I narrated from that book, which I suppose is about from 1850, on cassettes at least two times and parts of it a third time. Boston, calling natural man a spiritual monster wrote," his heels are lifted up against heaven--which his heart should be set on, Acts 9:5. His face is towards hell, his back towards heaven; and therefore God calls to him to turn. He loves what he should hate, and hates what he should love. He joys in what he ought to mourn for, and mourns for what he should rejoice in. He glories in his shame, and is ashamed of his glory."

“ Solidly Handled ”
It is hard to believe Pastor Bill has only been in the ministry less than 7 years. I thought a couple of days ago when he was teaching on Henry Martyn, as well as this, he has (1) a great gift to communicate, (2)wisdom above his years. His mode of communication commands respect, and though I probably am older than he is and have been a Reformed Baptist for 30 years this year and have listened to some of our great preachers, I would have no problem - if he was my pastor - in giving him my total respect and submission. The pastors at Berean say so many things that I am so much in agreement on. You will say that I should be in agreement with Bible teaching. It isn't just that. It is the practical way that they carry out their pastoral duties. Just one example that comes to mind, the utmost caution in giving oversight and counsel to a Christian sister to avoid temptation. see - SID=1220121058250 As a lover of church history, I only moaned because the message on Henry Martyn was too short!

“ Thanks for Making this a S A Pick ”
I have already commented on this sermon, in 2008, but since it so affected me when I first heard it, I am glad you are drawing attention to it. There is such a judgment day solemnity about it that I can't find words to express.

“ A Note from Johnny Farese. ”
The following note was sent out August 2013. It gives a small idea of what our brother was enduring before this week when he entered glory. "Dear Brethren, I am truly sorry that I haven't sent out a personal update on myself in quite sometime. I keep getting weaker and weaker as each day passes by. I can hardly speak a couple of words above a whisper. I am being taken off hospice on Thursday August 22. This means no more pain management until I can find a doctor who is willing to make house calls, this is not very easy. Please pray that our Lord will provide a doctor before Thursday.Spiritually I am graciously being upheld by our Lord through your faithful prayers. I am very eager to go Home, but "Your will not mine be done oh Lord."I wish physically I could serve you all better. However I am just too weak. Johnny Aug. 24th Dear Brethren, This is Gina writing on behalf of my brother Johnny. As you know Johnny's health has been declining over the past year. He has become so weak that he can no longer use his computer, Therefore, effective immediately. Johnny E-mail distribution service has sadly come to an end. He wants you to know that it has been a tremendous blessing to serve you over the past fourteen years.He is eager to meet many of you face to face in the new Jerusale

“ Why believers NEED this Psalm ”
When businesses face litigation because they will not cater to what in our day are labeled civil-rights, we feel like Asaph. PS 73:3 I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. But this Psalm shows that God takes notice. v. 11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. 12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. V. 11 "God is angry." The original expression here is very forcible. The true idea of it appears to be, to froth or foam at the mouth with indignation. Richard Mant, D.D., 1824. So when Asaph considered their end he concluded, " Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. 22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee." Or as Edwards wrote that the wrath of God will utterly undo the subject of it. And though now we think God is too silent, the day is coming when even rocks and mountains won't be a refuge to those who are His enemies. We must pray that God MERCIFULLY interpose, or as Edwards wrote, unhappy man that shall understand His wrath by feeling it.

“ Puritan Applications Abounding ”
This title caught my eye because my pastor is writing a dissertation on the sin of Judas. Written in 1634, this sermon has 8 doctrinal applications. But the puritans would explain that this act of Judas was the fruit of impenitence from small sins. So as I write this, I looked up a quote from William Taylor and his searching comments on the sin of "irritability" Taylor wrote," There is no sin for which we are more ready to excuse ourselves than irritability. I am bold to say that the loss of self-control has its origin in lack of faith, for the time being, in God. We bear a great calamity with composure, because we see God's hand in that; but when it comes to the upsetting of a tea-urn, or the breaking of a valuable ornament by an inexperienced servant, we act as if there was no providence. The leader who is calm in a great crisis, is thrown off his guard by a little breach of discipline; and the Christian who can stand in quiet composure beside the grave of a child, is excited into terrible anger by the removal of an article from its right place on his desk. He thinks it is temperament; but he ought to learn that it is lack of faith in God, and he should be on his guard lest it shut him out from some promised land of usefulness, into which he would otherwise have entered."1879

“ Johnny is in heaven! ”
This morning, March 10th, word has been received that this dear brother has passed away. To us "Reformed Baptists" he was an inspiration to say the least. He distributed our prayer letters for years using nothing but voice recognition software since he was a quadriplegic. How humbling it was to get a note from him that he was enjoying the sunshine for the first time on his face in six months as he would only go out to get his feeding tube replaced. He was interviewed by Coral Ridge Ministries while James Kennedy was still there. http://farese.com/video1.htm I know the last few months he was in continual pain, but I marveled at how patiently he seemed to endure it. He is one of the most amazing example of a person taking his broken body and placing it on the alter to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.

“ A Lancet and Heart Surgery ”
Today I was told by a "professing Christian" that "I was really out there". He meant that I was too strict that I was too narrow. I am narrating part two of this sermon. Not for him, FOR ME. He may not listen to it, I need it. Edwards said,"There are some that make a pretense to religion and will do many things; but when religion comes to pinch hard, they will shift it. If it comes to that, that there is occasion for any great degree of self-denial, or suffering consciously, or running any great venture of their worldly interest, a putting themselves much out of the way, they will excuse themselves. They never consented to be religious upon such terms; they never intended to hurt themselves by being religious. They intended to escape going to hell by it, but they never purposed to undergo any great matter in this world with it." Alexander Allen said that if you can read Edwards' Treatise on the Religious Affections,and still believe in your conversion, you may well have the highest assurance of your faith's reality. So it is in these sermons, the lancet is sharp and it is going to cut.

“ About This Sermon: ”
Rare Edwards sermons are kept at the Beinecke Rare Book Room and Manuscript Library, Yale University. The Yale Jonathan Edwards site is at edwards.yale.edu and this is sermon 232. I have not attempted to narrate his sermons on the Parable of the 10 Virgins, but they are also available there as well. Some of these sermons, such as The Shutting of the Door of Mercy, Edwards preached more than once. To properly understand THIS sermon here it would be helpful to add the words, Sinners {Who Remain Unconverted) Are Ordinarily Harder than the Heathen. Some of Edwards's sermon titles alone are very frightening, such as, "When Christ comes, wicked men's hopes of salvation, and seeming evidences of conviction, will at once totally vanish and disappear."

“ So much to ponder ”
I always enjoy these round table discussions. When I think of the foolishness surrounding the scandal of AZ Senate Bill 1062, I listen to how Christians answer a fool according to his folly, Prov. 26:5, and then realize only our Lord could so answer that it is written, " And no man after that durst ask him any question." Mark 12:34.. But there is ANOTHER problem, there will always be a double standard used against the Christian. Ethically it would be wrong to ask this question of someone asking us, against our conscience, to bake a cake for them..."You want me to bake you a cake, but how do you know that cake I bake for you will be safe for you to eat?" But whether it is legally wrong because it is a veiled threat too often depends on if the question is being asked of a Christian or of a lesbian who claims she needs it for her wedding. As our nation appears to be under God's wrath and being "given up" justice will side more and more against us. My only hope is that as a historian I can point to many historical epics where a genuine revival followed during such a low spiritual ebb in a nation's history. But we have no guarantee, and I doubt God will bless us unless we who profess His name cry out mightily. see SID=225141216282

“ An Amazing Verse ”
I was looking for about an hour through Puritan sermons to put eternal things in eternal perspective in light of the AZ governor vetoing Senate Bill SB 1062. The verse in the 2 Chapter of the 2 Epistle to the Thess. intrigued me and I wanted more light upon it. "God Shall Send Them Strong Delusion" Manton's Doctrine: "That by God's just judgment there is an infatuation upon the followers and abettors of Antichrist that they follow the grossest errors to their own destruction." I thought this appropriate because things that are so self evident and obvious are rejected by the wicked, and that which is most out of the way, foolish, and self-destructive is embraced with an incredible avidity that we can only marvel at it, depressed at it and for them afraid. Since as I type this note I have only a couple of more pages to narrate of the next sermon by Manton, "That they all might be damned" - verse 12. At the same time how can I not sigh and cry for the abominations in the land? Thinking of the words of a fellow puritan, Thomas Watson, who for a cup of pleasure would drink a sea of wrath?

“ Preached April 1679, Totally Relevant for US Today ”
Owen preached: There is a particularly ruining provocation, when men set their tongues against the Lord. It a great sign, of he approaching, ruin of a people and nation 1. By blasphemy 2. By mocking at judgments What are the sins that have a special opposition unto the eyes of God’s glory? All sorts of uncleanness, — adultery, fornication. 2.2. When men are bold in sin.3. The last aggravation whereby men provoke the eyes of God’s glory is when they declare their sin as Sodom.”How is it to “declare their sin as Sodom?” (1.) When men will confer and talk together about the vilest sins and wickednesses.(2.) When they will come unto that impudence, not only to confer about their sins, but so as to make them a scoffing and a laughing matter. Prepare to meet the Lord in the way of his judgments. God is righteous in all his ways, when he shall bring the scourge upon the nation, and it “shall be spoiled as Shalman spoiled Betharbel in the day of battle,” Hos. x. 14.Let us consider whether there be not those abominations among us against which the wrath of God is revealed from heaven. - John Owen 1679
